Question about Rinnai Unvented Gas Zone Heater. 99% fuel efficient: Blower with Thermostat
Rennai model # REH-30DT-P
Propane gas heater.
I can get the pilot lit and it will light the burner OK. However once the burner turns off the pilot will go out. I have to re-light the pilot each time I need heat. The flame seems, to me anyway, to be on the small size. Is there any way to increase the size of the pilot? Would that help? Or is there something else going on?
This is also the first year I've had propane in this house. In fact I just today had the tank filled and the line ran into the house. A new regulator was installed on the tank at that time.
I just got this heater from my landlord, it looks new, doesn't appear to be a recycled (pre-installed) one.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
Dan, Since you just had the tank filled and the heatewr installed a tinty piece of trash could have entered the pilot orfice. Un do the lower floor panel take off the pilot assy. Blow out the small pilot orfice. Blow reverse from normal gas flow to unlodge the debre. Re asemble and light.
If this dosen't work It may be the pilot air intake is too open causing the pilot to blow itself out.If thats the case close off the air adjustment some. It will be located behind where the flame exits the pilot orfice.
